I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
